Nothing special but a good (XF) extremly fine coin. Great album filler, but not worth more than one or two cents.
The date and Mint Mark shows DDD - Die Deterioration Doubling (incused)
Common on Copper Plated Zinc Cents..
Made mostly made of zinc. Worth 1 cent. Should weigh appox. 2.5 grams. Was minted in Denver. Looks AU.
This is what they call machine doubling of which I still have great difficulty with many years later.
It is die deterioration doubling.
My apologies. I still confuse it with genuine die doubling versus machine doubling (hope those terms are close enough).
